UFC president Dana White and company got the bad news this afternoon: Georges St-Pierre is sidelined for an extended period of time and will miss UFC 143 in early February.
According to White twitter account, the UFC's welterweight champ suffered a knee injury.
Nick Diaz, originally scheduled to face GSP, will now battle Carlos Condit for a 170-pound interim title belt.
Why an interim belt? By the time St-Pierre returns at the end of 2012, he'll have been sidelined for over 21 months. It's unknown whether Condit's original opponent at UFC 143, Josh Koscheck will remain on the card.
